The Republic of Hiberniann is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 881 million Hiberniannians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hiberniannian economy, worth 38.4 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 43,613 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cities in Hiberniann declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings, former weapons designers now boast about their non-jamming semi-automatic nail guns, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiberniann's national animal is the Irish Hare, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Hiberniann is ranked 85,345th in the world and 3rd in Celtic Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,550.02 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
